Criticism of PTI over talks with TTP 'unwarranted': Shah Mahmood Qureshi

PTI to give surprise in next elections: FM Qureshi


MULTAN: The Pakistan Justice Movement (PTI) government will complete its term and will make a surprise in the next general election, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmoud Qureshi said on Saturday.

Speaking to media sources, Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the government is fully aware of inflation in the country but PTI has taken steps to stabilize the economy. He added that the coronavirus has affected the global economy, but despite the pandemic, the country has managed well.

Talking about creation of South Punjab province, Qureshi said that he has penned a letter to Shehbaz Sharif and Bilawal Bhutto on the matter as government wants to fulfill its promise but establishment of new province requires constitutional amendment which requires support from opposition.

He further said that government is even willing to give opposition the credit for the constitutional amendment if it wants.

Criticizing the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), the minister said all parties in Sindh had rejected the provincial local government bill. He added that PTI supports local body elections.
